The latest CIF-SS boys soccer rankings. Yes, Fontana is still not in it. I was told by the Fontana coach last week, that because he doesn’t subscribe to socalsoccer.org, he’s not able to input results, so his resume (at least according to that site) doesn’t look very impressive.
My thought: It seems like a weak excuse. If you look, many of the leagues are missing games.
Christian Nunez scored two goals for the San Gorgonio Spartans (7-6-6 overall, 2-2 league) in the San Andreas League victory, 2-1, over the Indian Springs Coyotes (10-1-5, 1-1-2).
“We are better than our record would show. We just haven’t put it together until today,” said Spartans head coach Adrian Villalobos. “The San Andreas League is tough, anyone can beat anyone on any given day.”
Manuel Perez and Carlos Ortiz were each credited with an assist for the Spartans.
“Today, our offense was our best defense,” Villalobos said. “We out hustled them and we had a lot of possessions.”
The Spartans will play at 3:15 p.m. Wednesday against Rialto, who is in first place of the league. It will end the first round of league play.
The game also resulted in the first loss of the season for the Coyotes.
Indian Springs (maroon) and Rialto are two of the Top 10 teams in San Bernardino County.
Ready or not, here are the first Top 10s for The Sun in boys and girls soccer.
In boys, I felt pretty confident with the order of the first 5, but there were a lot of teams pretty similar after that.
The girls was tougher. I have 4 Baseline League teams ranked, and 3 of them in the top 4, but all of those 3 have lost at least once in league. There should be plenty of movement.
Reminder, records and rankings are through Tuesday’s games
The Sun Boys Soccer Top 10
1. Chaffey (14-0-3)
Plenty of Mt. Baldy pitfalls to an undefeated season
2. Fontana (14-1-1)
How is this team not ranked in Division 2?
3. Ontario (8-1-4)
This team is used to making playoff runs
4. Alta Loma (17-2-1)
Might’ve had easier time in Baseline League
5. Redlands East Valley (12-2-1)
Halfway through league, only blemish is loss to 7th place Miller
6. Indian Springs (9-0-5)
There could be plenty of ties in the San Andreas League
7. Granite Hills (11-1-7)
as played 5 scoreless ties this year
8. Oak Hills (11-1-5)
Tied 2 of first 3 league games
9. Rialto (8-3-5)
0-2-2 in last 4 games, but 2 were vs. Alta Loma and Indian Springs
10. Summit (10-2-1)
Already surpassed last year’s win total
Others under consideration: Arroyo Valley (8-4-3), Bloomington (8-6-1), Chino (10-4-2)
Below are the latest CIF-SS boys soccer rankings. Take a look and see if you notice a paritcular San Bernardino County team missing from the rankings. I’ll post who I think has been overlooked below the rankings.
How about Fontana in Division 2? Fontana just suffered its first loss of the season, to Bloomington, but is 14-1-1 this season. One of Fontana’s wins was a 2-0 win vs. Riverside Poly, which is tied for No. 4 in the division. According to maxpreps.com’s state power rankings, Fontana is No. 13 in the state. Among all schools. In all Divisions. I’m just saying.
Indian Springs and Rialto tied 1-1. My guess is that you’re going to have a lot of ties in the San Andreas League. The league goes 2 points for a win and 1 for a tie, so it’s difficult to create separation. And I don’t expect anyone to get separation.
Indian Springs boys soccer coach John Arient talks after his team tied Rialto 1-1.
My thoughts: Indian Springs looks good, but the San Andreas League looks like a dog fight. Indian Springs are currently ranked second in CIF-SS, but I’d be surprised if the Coyotes remain No. 2. Why? It has as much to do with the rest of the league. Indian Springs and Rialto have both tied their first 2 games. I wouldn’t be surprised if the winner of the SAL is something like 4-2-4 in league. That might not help CIF-SS rankings, but might help prepare a team for the playoffs.
